    I agree with you; Yu Na's so much better than anyone else! Sure Miki was good, but Yu Na's Giselle is so very dramatic and moving and wow it just gave me goosebumps^^ LOVE HER!!!!And I personally thought her spins were gorgeous!
    I'd love to see Alissa on the podium!!!
    Too bad for Rachael though, I love her
    Carolina was mediocre as usual. I don't get why many people say she's incredibly elegant; her Flamenco's definitely not a flamenco...
    Seriously, what happened to Mao?! She looks way too thin and her constantly worried expression is scary to watch...I was really shocked to see her like that.

    But she did good really.
    so she did
    her 3Lz (with step out - better than falling on her jump XD)
    3F+2T
    2A
    and rest of her components and they were AWESOME.
    Miki did great too but not as good as Yuna(jumps except her 3Lz, all of spins, step sequence, speed and choreography).
    Some of u guys saying that Miki should've got 1st place, but I actually expected Yuna to get 36ish(ah well my personal thought).

    But anyway, free skating will be really interesting. I wanna see whether Miki can lead on her FS (she's so constant in this season so if Yuna makes some mistakes, Y not ?)
    oh btw, I feel sorry for Mao... what the hell is happened to her? she's like so thin, no confidence and I could see she got tired during her SP. :(

    I agree alexeifan. I think her coaches should seriously bring this to light.
    You bet they will. Jason has served as a technical caller. It is not YuNa's fault that her
    spins got scored higher than Alissa's, I blame the judges.

    Congrats to YuNa, Miki and Ksneia!!

    Yuna with one mistake is better than clean Miki. That is almost universally acknowledged fact. And this wasn't even perfect Miki. She didn't even go for 3/3.

    I don't see any controversy here, period. The real controversy is how others were scored so low, and how Russians scored so well.

    THIS IS SO WRONG.
    This plus the +1 a judge gave her on her lutz and level 3 with +0.93 on her steps which if you see mao's and carolina's, yuna's steps are average.
    Now tell me this isn't score inflation! It's scandalous!

    I thought Yuna was so sloppy. It's easy to skate fast when you're sloppy and are not attempting beautiful positions. Miki had complex footwork and beautiful positions. This is figure skating, not speed skating.

    Uh no. Ksenia brought it. Yes her tech content was less difcult, but not as much considering Yuna's mistakes today (3T-3T/3L/2A vs 3F-2T/3Z/2A). She was crisp, sharp. Leonova is in freakin fifth place, you're going to go pick on her? She did better than all the people below her and she wasn't scored ahead of the top skaters.

    Sadly Yuna is getting the same GOE treatment as Chan. "When you're the favorit, you get ++ for everything you didn't screw".The +1 for the Luzt is laughable.

    Having said that, I think the placements are OK in my book, I would switch Miki/Yuna, Ksenia/Alissa and Alena/Carolina but all those pairings are basically tied, so its pointless to b*tch about it I guess.

    Um, I'm certain the +1 for the lutz was a mistake. It happens. and it was thrown out.

    I feel Yu Na should have won but I noticed a few things. She used pumping to get around the ice twice. Brian Orser would never have allowed that. As well she wasn't crisp and very strong in her positions. Much better then everyone else but not as good as last year.

    No, the solo jump must be preceded by steps. I too was wondering about this but I checked the rulebook (see page 13): http://www5.isu.org/vsite/vfile/page...-0-file,00.pdf

    ITA with you... I could only watch Yuna's sp without audio as I'm at the office, but her overall body language was different on the ice. The layback had nice variations, but the leg position was really bad. I must see it again with music.

    I couldn't see Miki, but her sp has been so gorgeous, that music really suits her.
